get ready to work it at TV au­di­tion

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360BETS - — Dale Roe

Are you “fierce?” If so (and if you meet the other qualifications — fe­roc­ity alone does not cut it, I guess) “Amer­ica’s Next Top Model” is look­ing for you.

The show is hold­ing an open cast­ing call in Austin with the lo­cal CW af­fil­i­ate.

Ap­pli­cants will be eval­u­ated from 2 to 7 p.m. Thurs­day at the Driskill Ho­tel, 604 Bra­zos St.

One hope­ful se­lected by a panel of judges will move onto the next round in Cal­i­for­nia.

The CW is seek­ing women ages 18 to 27 of di­verse back­grounds, shapes and sizes. One caveat: You’ve got to be at least 5 feet 7 inches tall.

Log on to to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion (you’ll need to have one com- pleted, along with a waiver, when you ar­rive at the au­di­tion) and to re­view the el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ments.

All con­tes­tants must bring leg­i­ble copies of ei­ther:

1. United States pass­port and driver’s li­cense, or

2. So­cial Se­cu­rity card and birth cer­tifi­cate.

Con­tes­tants also need three pho­to­graphs of them­selves with their first and last name writ­ten on the back.

At the cast­ing call, ap­pli­cants will record a three­minute video of them­selves mod­el­ing and an­swer­ing ques­tions about why they want to be Amer­ica’s Next Top Model.

You’ll want to ar­rive early: Pro­duc­ers will be­gin hand­ing out num­bers to those wait­ing in line at 1:45 p.m. on Thurs­day.

The num­ber of peo­ple who want to au­di­tion might ex­ceed the al­lot­ted time. Once the es­ti­mated num­ber of con­tes­tants who can be ac­com­mo­dated in five hours has been reached, The CW will not be tak­ing/tap­ing any other ap­pli­cants.
